being-18

anonymous asked:

If Seborgia is the oldest micronation at 17, then how old are Molessia and Hutt River supposed to be? They look like they are in their late teens or early 20s.

I don’t think Hima ever specified an age for Seborga, just that he pictured him as being a high school student. Molossia looks older than America to be honest, but to keep some consistency I’d guess Hima might put him as being slightly younger like 18 or something. I can’t really tell with his style, haha’’.

Hutt River I would assume is as old as Seborga, physically.

  • Me:Mom I'm 18 I don't need a curfew
  • Mom:I don't give a damn if you're 18. What you think because you're 18 you're grown? Can you pay 18 bills with your 18 years?
  • If you think you know everything now since you're 18 well you can go and be 18 outside my house. Talking about she's 18. I will slap 18 out of you with my 18 hands.
  • Me:... that doesn't even make sense?
  • Mom:shut up and go do the dishes it's 18 of 'em
18 things I learned while being 18

(Since it’s my last day being 18 I decided to write this)

1. Its ok to be homesick while you’re away at college
2. Dying your hair black is probably a bad decision
3. Eating bananas helps with cramps
4. Don’t ever put someone else’s mental health before your own.
5. If you don’t feel happy in the relationship anymore you should probably   leave.
6. Drinking orange juice in a rush to get to class after you brushed your       teeth is really gross.
7. Don’t wear a white shirt while drinking coffee
8. It’s ok to be nervous at a job interview
9. Going to a different country is the best thing you’re ever going to         experience
10. Getting tattoos hurt
11. Getting tattoos are probably the second best thing you’re ever going to experience
12. Just because you don’t spend as much time with someone doesn’t       mean they’re not still your best friend
13. Texting your grandma isn’t has fulfilling as calling her.
14. Making new friends is difficult.
15. Making new friends is also pretty fucking cool.
16. Making decisions that will change your life are the worst but extremely   necessary.
17. Working out can be fun.
18. People will understand that you have anxiety and are going to help you,  but you have to ask for the help.

Bonus 19. Loving yourself is difficult but it’s worth it all in the end.

fact: there’s no age requirement or age limit to figuring out your identity

source: the pew research center’s datset from their survey of lgbt americans

a lot of bi identified people struggle with feeling fake because of their age. young bi people may feel like they’re too young to know for certain, while older bi people may feel like because it took them longer to figure their identity out, it’s less valid. rest assured, though, your age does not determine the validity of your identity–and while each of us has to take our own path to figuring it out, age-wise, at least, you’re probably not alone! in a survey of 393 bisexuals ages 18 and older…

  • about half reported knowing that they were bi for certain sometime between ages 15-23, with the median age being 18.
  • ten percent of bisexuals reported knowing that they were bi by the age of 12, and one quarter reported knowing by age 15.
  • one quarter of bisexuals said they were not certain that they were bisexual until they were 23 or older, and ten percent did not feel certain that they were bi until they were 34 or older.

do you identify as bi, but still feel unsure or confused about your identity? no worries, you’re in good company as well. in addition to the 392 respondents who reported being sure of their bisexual identity, 37 respondents self-identified as bi, but said that they were not yet certain of their bi identity. of those respondents…

  • five were 18-24 years old
  • eight were 25-34 years old
  • six were 35-44 years old
  • six were 45-54 years old
  • six were 55-64 years old
  • two were 65-74 years old
  • four were older than 75

and as always, remember–there is no one way to be bi. you are amazing and your identity is valid <3

i just registered to vote.

wow, i’m feeling that much older.

technically i still have to fill the form and mail it in, but yeah. yay, this is the first 18year old thing i’ve done haha. even though i’ve been 18 for 18 days, dang coincidence much.
Oh and today I officially do not have to be paranoid driving around illegally, because I am insured! woo. I am still waiting on my own car tho, and a job. 

I can’t sleep, i’m waiting for my mom to get home…. I want to go wait in line for the lending library, save some money on some books with my friends, let’s hope she’s too tired and says yes…. I should be there right now but fuck camping out there haha. I’d rather go at 6AM, and pray that the line isn’t too long, It opens at 2pm and closes at 6pm, and by the looks of it, i hope it isn’t as bad as yesterday with a line wrapping around the whole campus. boo, okay, ima go fill out the registration forms.

i’m out. 

Louis is screwing being subtle during 18. He kept turning his head to Harry during the chorus. Harry was too far over during his solo to do it then but during the last chorus it continued. Then Harry killed us all by doing an amazing note change during the last line I’ve heard maybe.

Writing this now, God, how I miss the cultural side of eighties – the rhetoric, the raggedy clothes, the politics, gigs you were frightened to go into, Radio 1 when it had weird bits, Channel 4 when it was radical, the NME when it had writers, and the thrill of discovering underground music and new comedy for yourself.

Or maybe I just miss being eighteen, and like all those columnists who turned forty sometime in the late nineties and wrote simultaneous think-pieces on why Punk was the best thing ever, I’m just confusing the thrill of being young with the notion that the era in which I was young was in any way especially creative or remarkable.
